Good Company, Part One and  Part Two by Becca Lusher. A m/m fantasy romance that is still a work-in-progress. Tobi and Faron are completely adorable, so it’s going to take great willpower for me to wait patiently for the rest.

The Court of Five Thrones Ch 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, & 12 by Pia Foxhall. The tension is ratcheting up in this dark, m/m fantasy erotica, as the King of the Unseelie Court takes to the battlefield. Once again, a reminder that this story is explicit, with heavy trigger warnings, and not suitable for all readers.
